I hesitate to even bother reviewing Corona, but after seeing how it's so poorly rated, I figured I couldn't hurt it. In fact, I'll help it a little.
I really wonder who could tell a difference between Corona, Red Stripe, Flying Horse, Taj Majal, etc. All are considered "not recommended," but Corona is noticable lower rated than most all other beers. Sure, it's nothing great, but it's no worse than many others. I realize marketing sells the crap outa this stuff, not flavor, but it honestly isn't THAT bad especially when compared to the TRUELY undrinkable swill like, say, Old Milwaukee Ice or Charles Reibenbach Ice Ale. Even if they market the hell out of that stuff, it will not sell. Corona sells because it doesn't taste that bad. Very little interesting taste of any kind whatsoever, actually. It's slightly malty-sweet, but that's the extent of fancy descriptions. If you get a fresh batch and don't let the clear bottles (CLEAR! They're as stupid as Samuel Smith!) ruin it first, you seriously don't have that much to bitch about.
